What To Wear To A Winter Wedding When The Cold Hits

Ah, weddings. Such a whimsical, elegant affair. Also, perhaps unfortunately, NOT the place to pull a sweatshirt over your head.

Beauty can’t keep you warm, it’s sad but true…and even if a wedding falls in the middle of winter, you’re expected to dress to a certain standard no matter how cold you get. That makes it important to dress right in the first place. Otherwise you’ll be left shivering in the middle of the dance floor while everyone else busts their moves around you, just trying to soak up some of that priceless body heat.

Of course, men will be just fine in their suits – in fact, they probably suffer in summer as much as women suffer in winter. Well, fair is fair, and I guess it’s our turn now. At least we get to try out our different favorite styles while they’re stuck wearing the same thing all year round…

But fear not – these winter wedding outfit ideas can go the extra mile of warmth.

Satins & velvets

These fabrics are heat-insulating, so they’ll do the best job of keeping dress velvet you warm all through the night.

Long sleeves

No matter what’s happening on the bottom half, long sleeves will be your best friend on the top half. It’s no secret that that discreet under-arm area under contains a significant amount of our total body warmth, which is why it’s important to protect it at all costs. And there are so many ways to make long sleeves wedding-chic: pair them with a solid floor-length dress, a slitted floor-length dress
, or even a shorter dress. Legs simply don’t get as cold as our upper half, but when they do – grab a seat and cocoon yourself! You’ll be warmer in an instant.
